Smoothies; Green energy drink

Green smoothie

I tend to eat a lot of fiber in my daily intake. I love dark leafy greens, and prepare them in a variety of ways. For those who’re not used to dark greens, there are other ways you can incorporate them into ones daily intake.

Adding greens to raw juices or smoothies is an excellent way to increase your fiber, along with many other nutrients that the greens provide. Because you’re adding the greens to a fruit smoothie, it will mask the taste of the greens.

I love dark leafy greens, and often eat them raw. I tend to add a bit more greens than what I’ve suggested below.

Green Energy Drink

  • 4 cups unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup cubed pineapple
  • 2 cups collards (or other greens like lettuce, kale, or collards)
  • 1″ ginger root

*If you want a thinner smoothie, add more apple juice. Directions

  1. In a blender add all ingredients
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Drink and enjoy

This post was written in advance, since I’m away for the Thanksgiving holidays. I won’t be checking my personal mail. My holidays are spent taking a break from everything technology related. I’ll be back soon, and will respond to comments, and visit your virtual homes.

Blessings, Opal
